Review of the 2002 Cadillac Escalade EXT

  • It's gaudy, expensive, sucks gas like a '70s Eldorado, yet somehow manages to retain a level of desirability we can't quite figure out.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong engine, innovative packaging, features galore.

  • Cons

    Love-it or hate-it styling, poor mileage, steep price tag.

  • What's New for 2002

    In response to Lincoln's new Blackwood pickup, which is little more than a Ford F-150 Super Crew with a Navigator cabin grafted on, Cadillac trots out this Chevrolet Avalanche with an Escalade facelift.

Best overall truck i have

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4dr Crew Cab AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

There is not a week goes by that someone does not tell me that my truck is one of the sharpest looking they have seen. I have never owned one like it and I love driving it under any conditions. I have pulled a 32foot boat with a triple axle trailer, and it goes up steep grades with no problem. Mine has the Diamond Pearl paint, and it is gorgeous if I do say so. I can't fault this vehicle,except, the gas mileage is not very good. But if you "want the music, you have to pay the piper". To me, the music is worth it.

Just little probs....

Vehicle: 2002 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4dr Crew Cab AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

The Ext is great, but it does have it's problems. The knobs on the midgate window support (when folding down the back seats) are prone to break off, leaving your glass "less than secure" while hauling. The power windows sometimes seem to work harder than necessary (mine was on the front pass. side). The locking mechanism on the embedded side boxes have failed on both sides, never staying quite locked, and will blow open at highway speeds(however, I've only experienced this while riding without the cargo securing sections on the truck). The leather is nice, but the carpeting is 2nd grade. Drivers side control for outside power mirrors is "jinky" for lack of precise movement

I owned 2 GM products in the late 80s and early 90s that had to be bought back through Better business bureau arbitration. After Driving for the past 1o years Range Rover, Lexus, Toyota Supra, Porsche, and Acura I needed to trade my 99 Acura 3.5 RL for something that can tow a jetski.(cried when I traded the 3.5RL) It was between Landrover Discovery and Escalade EXT. Chose the EXT over Discovery on all levels. The interior trim is totally GM cheesy with more fake woodgrain than you can shake a paint can at. Pricing on Diamond White with Sunroof MSRP 52K and change. Negotiated 11K off of MSRP for total of about 4K under invoice. Im satisfied.

own a new toy tundra limited, my father bought the caddy. The caddy has good accelaration and corners well for such a big truck, but ride and smoothness equal to my tundra.Caddy has been in the shop 5 times already tundra ZERO!He wanted to buy a lincoln blackwood at first but since it does not have 4wd and i told him to stay away he bought the caddy. he likes the caddy very much so much that his new audi S8 sits and collects dust.
